Growing Your Very Own Glass Gem Corn
When glass gem corn stimulated waves online a couple of years back, I’ve been itching to try my hand at growing it. Ideally, corn isn’t really hard to grow, all it needs are the right conditions. But before you jump to conclusions, let’s clear things up. This glass gem corn is NOT a GMO corn creation. It’s a real variety of a beautiful-looking corn. Want to start growing it? Here’s how 😛 TAGEND
Commonly, corn is easily killed by frost, so it is a must that you plant it when the frost threat outdoors is over. It is best you wait until the soil is all warmed up to 60 Adeg before you start to germinate the seeds. Wait until you gratify these conditions and you won’t have a hard time growing glass gem corn. You don’t really need to hasten it.
Ideally, corn loves sunny and wind-protected space. If you’re fond of planting corn in rows, with glass gem corn, it’s actually better to plant it in blocks, 3 deep by 3 wide. The extra space will give your corn an easier hour pollinating.
Make an inch-deep pit in a nitrogen-filled soil and plant 3 seeds together, about a foot apart. The seeds will bud in 7 to 10 days. There will be poor seedlings to one plant per foot, so remove unnecessary seedlings by cutting them off at soil level. Never uproot them!
